330099386PhD position available in endocrine regulation of metabolism and developmentRobot Department Of Biology Faculty of Science University of Copenhagen Department of Biology Faculty of Science at University of Copenhagen is offering a PhD scholarship in in endocrine regulation of metabolism and development commencing 01.01.2020 or as soon as possible thereafter. Description of the scientific environment The Rewitz lab is currently on the lookout for a number of Ph.D.-students . The lab is working intensively on aspects of endocrine regulation of metabolism and development in the fruit fly Drosophila melanogaster, and the projects for which we are recruiting students are in this area. The Rewitz lab at the moment comprises Kim Rewitz (Principal Investigator), two Assistant Professors, one Ph.D. student, six Master s students, and a laboratory manager technician. Prior experience in Drosophila work or in the metabolism field is not necessary, but of course is a bonus. No preference will be given in any way to any aspect of the applicant s non-scientific background, including ethnicity, sex and identity, nationality, and so on. New facilities! We have just completely rebuilt our fly facilities, so fly-pushers can work in a bright open space with plenty of storage space at the bench as well as in an 18-degree room. All-new fly scopes sit at every bench space. Incubators at a variety of temperatures are available. In addition to this new space, the lab also has standard molecular-lab tools and apparatus a qPCR machine and PCR machines a plate reader for absorbance, fluorescence, DELFIA TRFIA, and Alpha signals and access to confocal microscopes (LSM 800 with AiryScan) as well as more-advanced imaging tools such as TEM, PALM STORM, structured illumination microscopy, and so on. Project one: cholesterol as a growth-regulating nutrient Cholesterol is a famous molecule -- rightly so, and for many reasons. It is necessary as a structural component of cell membranes, providing fluidity (for example, this is one reason for which cold-water shrimp are high in cholesterol: it keeps their cell membranes from solidifying). Cholesterol is also the chemical substrate for the synthesis of steroid hormones, both in mammals (for example, testosterone and estrogen) and in insects (the steroid hormone ecdysone). Dysfunction of biological cholesterol-management systems also leads to health defects, such as heart disease, stroke, and the Niemann-Pick class of cholesterol-storage diseases. Furthermore, we recently found that dietary cholesterol regulates organismal and cellular growth in Drosophila larvae, with effects on nutrient signaling through the master cellular regulator Target of Rapamycin (Tor) as well as through the insulin-signaling system. In this work, we will investigate the precise ways that cholesterol affects metabolism and growth through genetic analyses and manipulations of the Tor and insulin pathways, through transcriptomic assessments, imaging, and other approaches. We will also probe the function of the Niemann-Pick-disease-related cholesterol-transport genes in various tissues, as well as the neuronal basis (if any) for cholesterol sensation and preference. Project two: signals from the gut that regulate metabolism Animal bodies are made up of a collection of different organs, each with different functions. To maintain energy homeostasis, each of them has access to different aspects of information about the internal nutritional state of the animal and of its environment. In our lab, one of our research goals is to identify hormonal signals that regulate metabolism the gut, as the first organ that can assess recently eaten food, is a likely source of these signals. There are about two thousand potentially secreted proteins encoded in the fly genome, any of which might act as a hormonal signal from the gut to some other tissue the brain, the fat, or the musculature apprising them of new nutritional information. In this work, we aim to comprehensively screen the gut secretome for metabolism-regulating hormonal signals using a combination of unbiased transcriptomic correlations between tissues and tissue-specific gene knockdown and CRISPR manipulations. This project involves preparations for and analysis of transcriptomic data, RNAi screening, and metabolic assessment of animals, as well as follow-up studies on identified factors of interest through, e.g., genetic, metabolic, and imaging studies.
